I will update my comment from a year ago because now I have added a 7 band eq to my simple pedal arrangement and love it. Really lets you fine tune the tone with the eq. So I use a keeley compressor, the eq and an overdrive pedal. Very basic stuff but all I really need. I use one of those little 3 pedal molded boards that makes it a snap to carry it around. I also carry a boss stomp tuner but use that on a battery as a stand alone so it can be shared with others to tune up.
